Production Begins on 'The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot' Sequel

Former Doctor Paul McGann has revealed that a sequel to the hilarious The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is in the works.

The Withnail and I actor, who himself made a brief cameo appearance in the popular comedy short, was speaking yesterday at an event for the Cambridge Union Society, where he also claimed the BBC had 'missed a trick' by not casting a female Doctor and described acting as a 'cruel but not indifferent profession'. No other details were revealed about the sequel, so it is as yet unknown who will appear or when it will be broadcast.

The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot - written and directed by Peter Davison - was shown as part of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary celebrations, and followed the exploits of Davison and fellow Doctors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy as they attempted to get parts in the 50th anniversary special. The trio were joined by a host of current Who stars and alumni from both in front of and behind the camera, and since its broadcast has not only gained a great deal of popularity amongst fans but has also clinched no less than a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. Colin Baker has also recently hinted that the spoof will appear as part of a planned 50th anniversary box set release later this year (read more here).
